Susan Grace is a painter who lives and works in Lawrence, KS. Her work has been widely exhibited throughout the U.S., and she has received numerous awards for her work.  Her paintings are in many private and public collections, including the Mulvane Art Museum, Topeka, KS and The Art of Emprise Collection, Wichita, KS. Although she studied painting in Athens, Greece, her academic background is primarily in literature and theater, and she taught courses in modern American and European literature at universities in the U.S. and at The American College of Greece in Athens, Greece.  While teaching, she always maintained an active studio practice regardless of where she was living. Upon returning to the U.S., she held a tenured faculty position at the University of Kansas until she left for a full-time artist studio practice. Her study of literature and theater continues to inspire and influence her work.
